The Ottawa Branch of the Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering will present a symposium on the theme of “MARINE SECURITY AND LOGISTICS” at Crowne Plaza Hotel, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Security, in all its forms, will continue to be a dominant issue for the foreseeable future, for governments, industry, and individuals. It is particularly relevant to the marine sector, which handles much of Canada’s trade, and has prime responsibility for coastal surveillance and security enforcement. The Conference will focus on national and regional marine security needs, plans and progress.
A secondary focus of MARI-TECH 2005 is logistics, a critical element in all marine organisations and operations. The current item of interest is the Navy’s Joint Support Ship (JSS) Project, currently in the Pre-Qualification Phase.
Marine engineering and technology is the traditional basis of the conference, and will be reflected in the Exhibition and the Papers Programme.
